Five Tuesdays in Winter Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Writers & Lovers established Lily King as one of our most beloved authors of contemporary fiction. Now, for the first time ever, King collects 10 of her finest short stories, opening fresh realms of discovery for avid and new listeners alike.
Told in the intimate voices of unique and endearing characters of all ages, these tales explore desire and heartache, loss and discovery, moments of jolting violence and the inexorable tug towards love at all costs. A bookseller’s unspoken love for his employee rises to the surface, a neglected teenage boy finds much-needed nurturing from an unlikely pair of college students hired to housesit, a girl’s loss of innocence at the hands of her employer’s son becomes a catalyst for strength and confidence, and a proud nonagenarian rages helplessly in his granddaughter’s hospital room. Romantic, hopeful, brutally raw and unsparingly honest, some even slipping into the surreal, these stories are, above all, about King’s enduring subject of love.
Lily King's literary mastery, her spare and stunning prose and her gift for creating lasting and treasured characters is on full display in this curated selection of short fiction. Five Tuesdays in Winter showcases an exhilarating new form for this extraordinarily gifted author writing at the height of her career.

In summary, not a 5-star book for me but definitely something for Lily King fans. And besides, I'm kind of into this supercheesy cover.
What did they think of the ending...what "might have happened next.?" For better or worse, so many aspects of human nature and interaction are revealed in these stories.
Author, Lily King
I read Lily King's wild Euphoria and loved Writers and Lovers last year, so I was eager to read her first short story collection!
Five Tuesdays in Winter comprises a wide- ranging collection of ten short stories that are filled with honesty, desire, love, and loss told by characters who are emotional and filled with depth and unique perspectives.
My favorites were of a lonely bookseller who is in love with a young woman who works in his bookstore and of a young teenage boy who learns what it means to live and love while his parents are away for the summer and he is being cared for by two college- aged young men.
Each filled with it's own emotionally captivating story. Of course, as with most short story collections, I find myself wanting more from some of these and wish they were longer!
